Just heard it on an Intel radio commercial: WiDi= WIreless Display

Beam movies from your computer to your TV, no wires. http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/07/intel-announces-widi-hd-wireless-display-technology/

Where will the acronyms end?

Quick! We "need" WiLi, Waylay, and WoLo next. Get Sector 7 working on it all!

"Where will the acronyms end?" - Perhaps THIS acronym is all you need... would WiDi be pronounced WhyDie?

Waylay would be perfect for the sensor network I just got done
working with...it really fits :-)

The wireless power is where it at! Only problem is its still in the research stages. They had a tv at e3 I think 2 years ago that had literaly no wires at all just like a picture frame.

There is also LiFi (http://www.good.is/post/forget-wifi-it-s-lifi-internet-through-lightbulbs/), though they may have to come up with a different acronym, since Panasonic (http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/LIFI-Projection-HDTVs.75405) is already using that.

WiDi (Why Die?) sounds like the technology to use for brain uploading, ala Kurzweil. He should have grabbed the trademark while he could.

I think Jack Kevorkian had that name tied up back then...No wait, it was WiNotDi...
